Hey folks!

Thought Id hop in and add a bit about the story elements in our upcoming releases. Ill spoiler tag anything that I think might be too specific, but if you want to know absolutely nothing, maybe just skip this post entirely

Game Update 6.1 will include a small story beat around the size of Hearts and Minds. Specifically, this will be about checking in with the newly-formed factional groups Task Force Nova for Republic players, and the Hand for Imperials and making some initial decisions to guide them as theyre getting ramped up (including Saboteur options for those so inclined). For Imperials, this also means meeting your new liaison, Darth Rivix he was a lot of fun to write, so Im looking forward to seeing everyones reactions.

The update will also include a few other small scenes, including:
  • A check-in with Kira and Scourge, setting up the story for Game Update 6.2 (more on that below)
  • Troopers will have a 1-on-1 with Elara Dorne
  • Agents will have a 1-on-1 with Vector
  • And lastly
As Keith mentioned, 6.1 will be followed by 6.1.1 and 6.1.2. After that, our next story beat will come in Game Update 6.2: The One Where Crazy Stuff Happens*. Since its still in the works and a bit further out, I wont go into nearly as much detail, and Im going to put just about everything in spoiler tags just in case. But the TL;DR is that 6.2 will deal directly with the situation Kira and Scourge bring to light at the end of Onslaught.

*Definitely the final, confirmed update name.


Beyond that, in addition to the content, features, and quality-of-life improvements Keith mentioned that were looking to add past 6.1.2 and 6.2, you can expect the storyline that started with Jedi Under Siege and Onslaught to continue through our updates the rest of this year and beyond. After all, were in our ninth year, and our tenth anniversary is just around the corner--a very exciting time for SWTOR to be sure!
